just having a read, this time the voting is a little different, and theres several heats, seems a bit over complicated to me, but I think they are just trying to make it a level playing field, I`ll let ya know when the voting is open smile.gif

Well Chris you said in June you were going to have a pop at this and true to your word you have, I for one think you have done a great job. It has guts! not just shredding your way through nearly 4mins like some of the contestants last year did! it has a fantastic melodic feel to it real heart! All we need now is a lesson on it lol; and if you get to London I will cheer you on Great job.
